Think global, shop local

Dear Editor:

A challenge to Carbondale residents: Please do as much Christmas shopping as possible with the merchants in town. We have books, a food coop, Hispanic goods, jewelry, art, electronics, antiques, fine pre-owned goods, specialty foods, Asian wares, furniture, kitchenware, and a variety of other great goods and services.

I focus my holiday gift buying in Carbondale every year. It’s a great way to get to know the people behind the cash register and find cool, imaginative gifts for friends and family. And by doing so this year, you’ll be helping your neighbors stay in business and keeping your sales tax dollars where they belong, in Carbondale.

Allyn Harvey
